HISTORY & SPONSORS
Welcome to the 2015 British Columbia Wine Awards – the British Columbia wine judging competition that recognizes excellence in winemaking for all British Columbia wineries. The British Columbia Wine Awards are generously sponsored by Farm Credit Canada, ContainerWorld, Grant Thornton and TricorBraun Winepak. These awards offer our British Columbia wine industry the opportunity to have their wines judged by 9 of the most respected wine judges from across North America. Winners will be awarded medals of excellence and will be recognized in a comprehensive public relations and sales campaign organized by the Okanagan Wine Festivals.
Our 9 eminent judges this year include the following:
For the first time, we are also pleased to announce that Sally Campa has accepted our invitation to be our Apprentice Judge for the British Columbia Wine Awards. Sally is from Vancouver and is the GM for Vino Volo.
A bio and picture of each judge is live on our website at www.thewinefestivals.com.
With the success of the revised medal structure in 2014, we are excited to once again present Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum medals and the Premier's Wine Award.
Derived from the Gold medal winning wines, the Platinum medal wines have been distinguished as the top 1% of wines entered. Of those Platinum winning wines, based on consensus of all judges, one will be chosen as the best wine of the awards and be named the Premier's Wine. The Premier's Wine will be presented by our Premier. All awards will be handed out at the British Columbia Wine Awards Reception & Tasting on Wednesday, October 1st from 7pm-9:30pm at the Laurel Heritage Packinghouse in Kelowna. This is a public event. Each Member Winery will receive two tickets to attend and if a member winery wishes to buy more tickets, they may be purchased at www.selectyourtickets.com or call 250 717-5304.
